I check court houses for percent bonus for major mineral owners. For more than ten years I have received
25% and $200 for bonus. They complain but I get it. I have never signed a lease fo more than three years.
I have been paid for extension but never for more than one year. I never sign a lease accept with major
players. If the amount a large I have it closed at a title company. I never accept a draft. The biggest problem I have ever had is smaller companies buying production then going bankrupt. I have signed close
to 100 leases.
